Nowadays, the Russian metallurgical complex faces an exciting challenge to develop the country's resource base, finding alternative suppliers of materials and new types of metal products and creating competence centers under the import substitution program and realize huge infrastructure projects. Leading metallurgical and engineering companies, as well as manufacturers of metal structures and metal products, among them MMK, TMK, Severstal, OMK, NLMK, Metalloinvest, EVRAZ, Mechel, Novostal-M, UMMC, Tulachermet-Steel, AEM-Special Steels, TEMPO, Uraltrubprom, Ural Steel, NVTZ, UMK-Steel, Ashinsky Steel Plant, Zlatoust Steel Plant, Aluminum Metallurg Rus, VSMPO-AVISMA, KUMZ, SMK, Akron Holding Group, CZP, MMK-Metiz, Severstal-Metiz, EZTM, TVEL, Metallinvest, Belarusian Metallurgical Plant, GEMKOM, China Foundry and many more will show their opportunities in this strategic direction at the Metal-Expo'2023.
Thousands of key metal products consumers from construction, machinery, aircraft, shipbuilding, oil and gas complex, logistics, metal processing and trading companies will visit business centre of Moscow. Metal-Expo'2023 will held in three spacious halls of Expocentre Fairgrounds at the same time. Hall 2 and Hall 8 will host leading steel and non-ferrous metallurgy companies, while Hall 3 will host the «MetallurgMash» the exposition of machinery, equipment, technologies and engineering solutions for the steel industry. In Russian metallurgy industry realizing huge projects which require full range metallurgy equipment, investment in metalworking and metal service centers is increasing, therefore, the promotion of metallurgical equipment and components comes to the leading place.
The ongoing work of the metallurgical enterprises connect with a lot of difficulties: changes in export flows and logical chains, changes in supply and procurement chains, changes in tax systems, necessity correction investment plans, product lines and searching for new ways to selling products, tightening of environmental requirements. The market is significantly transformed, producers and traders are converging, the formats of interaction with counterparts are changing.
The current situation requires companies to study more carefully the competitive environment, monitor and analyze market trends to maintain business sustainability and more rapid decision-making. Market players need to develop industry partnership and clients
communities, develop and realize metal consumption incentive programs in cooperation with related sectors of the economy, said Alexey Efimov, Director General of Metal-Expo'2023, Such a intersectoral dialogue will be facilitated by the extensive business program of Metal Week in Moscow, in which representatives of the professional community will discuss the prospects for the future development of various segment of industry, construction, energy, engineering, will present updated corporative strategies and invest projects».
The congress part of the event including more than 50 conferences, seminars, roundtables in all segments of metallurgical business: usage of perspective materials and equipment for ferrous and non-ferrous metals, secondary resources, standardization of reinforcing bars, galvanized and polymer products market, new types of metal products for automotive and medicine, additive and 3-D technologies, metallurgy market, hardware industry, marketing in metallurgy, digital transformation, corporative communications and est. The Metal-Expo'2023 conference programme will additionally attract up to 4000 representatives of the construction complex, TEK, engineering, transport and logistics to the work on the forum. At the exhibition they can solve all questions about products supply, technical support and service. Metal-Expo'2023 rightly belongs to the negotiating platforms that proved their effectiveness.
As part of business program key industry associations and research institutes will held their events. Traditionally at Metal-Expo'2023 the meeting of the «Coordinating Council of the metallurgical industry under the Ministry of industry and Trade of Russia» will take place, at this meeting all problems and prospects will be discussed. At Metal-Expo'2023 winners of contests: The Main Event in the Russian Steel Industry'2023, The Best Russian Sales Network'2023, Steel Service Center'2023, Young Scientists etc will be awarded.

Currently the Metal-Expo management arranges national and international expositions of Metal-Expo’2023. In addition to the activity of Russian companies, companies from South-East Asia and the Middle East taking the vacant place, replacing the companies from Europe and America, which temporary doesn't participate at this year for obvious reasons.
